Kansas -- Texas Tech Game Part 2

Now to address the controversy surrounding Kansas football kickoffs and the rather unfortunate phrase they scream each time the Jayhawks kick off. Despite the best efforts of the student newspaper and even Coach Mark Mangino's video request to stop using the phrase, the student section started cheering it again during the game. But after KU's first touch down, the people controlling the P.A. for the stadium began playing loud music [you know, "We Will Rock You," that kind of stuff] during the kickoff so that nothing could be heard coming from the student section...

We have something similar at Purdue after the first down chant the students do. They instructed the band to drown out the noise with a train whistle after the students did not listen to pleas from the student paper. Now the students just time it after the horn. If they blow the horn twice, the students wait until after the second one to do it. It is quite a game they have going.
